I worked with Bill for many, many years. We were contractors together on Task Force starting in 1986 and then hired on as technicians and were stationed at PS4. As I went thru my tech progression Bill was my teacher for my discipline as a mechanic. We had some great times. On plane rides out of Galbraith we always drank Bloody Maria's (tequila not vodka). We remained friends after we both retired. Bill had the best sense of humor. He and his wife Judy as well as his sons Ron and Brad were great friends. I am so sad at the loss of this wonderful, kind and generous guy. He was the best friend anyone could ask for. RIP Bill you deserve to be pain free. See ya someday on the crew change flight to heaven, drinks on me.

Bill was already an "old time" technician by the time I arrived in the field.  He was highly regarded and respected by his peers but never let that get to his head. He was always extremely welcoming, disciplined but easy going, and willing to share his knowledge with me and new hires when we showed up at PS03 and PS04. He did his job with a smile and sense of service. Even though I never met his wife and family, I knew he adored them by how he spoke about them.  Rest in peace, Bill.  I'm so glad that you got to enjoy the retirement you deserved.
